Structured interviews with 555 Puerto Rican youth aged 16-24 found that the impact of risk factors on drug use was offset by cultural knowledge, being culturally active, group attachment, and identification with Puerto Ricans. Ethnicity variables also enhanced the protective effect of other protective factors. Contains 36 references. (Author/SV)
